Your Pet’s Horoscope for August 2009
on August 5, 2009
Posted in Fun
Despite the warm weather, Capricorn pets will behave rather coolly and indifferent this month. This will prove to be a bit alarming and frustrating for their owners, as these pets will start to exhibit somewhat odd behaviors and eating habits. This won’t last too long and by the end of the month your pet will be back to his old self again.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
This month, Aquarius pets will need extra TLC from their owners, as they show just how nervous they can get over the hustle and bustle inside the home concerning students who are getting ready to go back to school. Make sure you spend extra quality time with your pet so that she does not feel left out.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Blame it on the summertime heat, if you will, but this month Pisces pets will appear to be quite lazy and rather self indulgent too! This lethargic lifestyle is quite fine for now but just keep in mind that prolonged laziness can lead to obesity for your pet. Try to get your Pisces pet out of the house for a bit.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Planning on having a house party this month? Well then be prepared for your Aries pet to be the center of attention! Don’t worry though; your pet will love it! This is the perfect opportunity to teach your pet a new trick or two to show off to your guests.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
The usually lovable and kind Taurus pet will seem to have gone over to the dark side this month! Do not be alarmed when your pet refuses to share toys with you or any other pet in the household. What’s his IS his this month. This won’t last long and your Taurus pet will be back to his usually self by month’s end.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
One of the most inquisitive pets, the Gemini pet will seem to be rejuvenated this month. Use this bout of extra energy to your advantage and take the family out for the day with your pet. Hiking or other similar type of adventure will go over very well for both your pet and the rest of your family.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23)
Even though Cancer pets come across as being introverted, they will appear to be in sync with you and the rest of the household members. However, your Cancer pet will still succumb to ugly mood swings every now and then this month. Be sure to keep him in-check by providing lots of quality time together.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Their birthday status will go straight to the Leo pet’s head this month, as they try to outsmart you in order to vie for pack leader. Gently remind your Leo pet of their role in the family pack by taking a new obedience class together.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
August will also see a few Virgo pets celebrating their birthday as well. Besides throwing your Virgo pet a birthday party, your household will be streaming with activities this month. Keep an eye on your pet as they can feel left out pretty quickly. Remember to bring your Virgo pet along for the ride whenever possible.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
The Libra pet will need to be given extra special one-on-one attention this month, as their needs change. They may decide on a new area for their bed to be. They may even prefer a welcome change in routine. Pay attention to your pet and you will know exactly when it is the right time to show them just how much you care about them.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 2)
Scorpio pets will need additional motivational support this month in order to get them up and about from laying around in the sunshine all day. Take your pet for a nice long walk for a change of scenery. Just be sure that they get adequate exercise to avoid obesity, and don’t forget the water!
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
August will prove to be a very energetic month for Sagittarius pets this year, which will be proven by your pet running around the house like a jack rabbit. Be sure to set some boundaries and remind your pet of them, otherwise their antics can lead to a broken vase. Since Sagittarius pets can become overly excited this month, it is advisable to keep household visitations at a minimum.
